Okay, lets start with the couture dress to melt a man’s heart. Take a look at my report on London Fashion Week and prepare to fall in love with the work of Reem Alasadi. Reem is a genius at recycling. A designer with the sensibility of a beautiful magpie, and an extraordinary talent for taking clothes destined for landfill and the charity shop, and then reworking them into items of absolute beauty, ingenuity and desire. I love her witty take on the Edwardian day dress. In Reem’s world of beautiful nomads a dress plays homage to prim Victoriana with a cascade of girlish ruffles, a bodice that reveals a woman’s shape and pretty waist and giant leg o muffin sleeves! Then to bring this look bang up to date she clashes prettiness and demure with a pair of shiny glam rock leggings!
My lust items for Spring Summer 2010? No question, it has to be her witty, embellished sequin parka and opulent pearl and lace corsage necklaces. Decadent, Utility Chic has arrived.
